  1. One of their reporters finally stumbled across it and threw something up. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52099863
  2. A timely piece from The Gruniad which surprised me. The last paragraph really summed it up for me https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/mar/29/the-coronavirus-crisis-has-brought-the-eus-failings-into-sharp-relief
  3. Same. To win the oldest cup competition when you've failed 4 times before would be unicorn territory... And if it was against the Trees... https://giphy.com/gifs/reactionseditor-yes-awesome-3ohzdIuqJoo8QdKlnW

    really? you can't get pet stuff online, or or pet food and peripherals from the shops? Vets as keyworker maybe? but the other people in there, no.

    Corona Virus

    I don' t think it will. There may be long, deep recessions, but it will keep going. People will still work to save their pensions, companies will still need to borrow to do more business, people will still invest in new start-ups that will spring up after the virus is more well-known and contained. As has been repeated before, this is a medical failure, not an economical one. There is an impact yes, but we're better placed than 2007/8 to weather it financially.

    How about a podcast? You of all ppl would have the skills to: a) knock one out at decent quality in production and content; b) do it on a timely schedule (one or twice a week?) c) have plenty of previous content to work with, plus all the crazy stuff on here (players must be scratching around for contact as well?) Maybe one that is a short weekly update, and the other is a longer half-hour on one specific topic? So why not revisit previous interviews you've done (and own copyright on?) and maybe talk about the stuff that happened off-mike, the quirky side of players and clubs? Cover the virtual tournaments. Just need a catchy name for the pod... In adversity, there is opportunity. Go for it mate.

    This! this! this! I hope someone in the public eye eventually calls them on it - it'd be a brave politician though.

    Corona Virus

    You're right. It is technically 'airborne' for the few seconds when it might be coughed or sneezed out and into the air - upto 11ft at current estimates. But it's the droplets on the surfaces, and their ability to live for (relatively) long periods which is the real problem - and the one you identify.

    I read the UCL report than was linked in that article and is focused on the UK. If you can read the article referenced above, I would strongly recommend you read the report by UCL which is focused on the UK. But the main conclusion is pretty sobering once you get to it. We've recently adopted the suppression strategy moving from the mitigation strategy (herd immunity and so on) and you can probably understand why HM Govt about-faced when you're looking at a quarter of a million dead. UCL estimates 18 months until a viable vaccine becomes available. We should prepare for many months of this with a rise and fall in numbers of cases, and perhaps a secondary peak around Oct/Nov starting again until a vaccine becomes available. Need more data to refine.

    how can they confirm if they won't test?

    I fully agree with you. We're in dark times, and these are brave people to be doing this. Good people come to the fore in the dark times, sometimes even at personal cost. A cost that too often will not be appreciated or recognised in times ahead - more likely to be forgotten, yet still they come. Some people are just born to do the right thing. Thankfully.

    It's the scientific conclusion from SAGE (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies) so I would guess that it'll come into the daily reports from the PM at some point if not today when the journos start asking why he said 12wks and they say much longer. Given that he's always been ready to defer to the science guys(and gals) in his briefings, you would hope he will do the same here.

    Scottish FM and CMO saying the restrictions might need to last a lot longer and then this.. Looks like we're in the for the long haul.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-51955931 Can't blame it on immigrants for the second wave... will most likely be the same for us. US has also issued Level 4 warning by State dept i.e. "get the fuch back to the States before we shut up shop".
